Someone Kill Me Before I Do It Myself
Until the Light Takes Us (2008)
Dir - Aaron Aites & Audrey Ewell
A cold dark snowy night seemed like the perfect time to watch a doc about Norwegian black metal. This deals mostly with the inception of the concept/genre and controversy it's surrounded by - church burnings, Varg killing Euronymous. An interesting look into this side of the musical world though I wish there would have been some (more) live performance footage. The art gallery scene with Fenriz and artist Bjarne Melgaard is silent but so eerily tense, I love it! Maybe not the best, most complete look into the world of black metal but still very interesting.
Black metal bonus points awarded to me for listening to Dartkthrone's album "A Blaze in the Northern Sky" while writing this. Epic.
